Orthodox punk update

As I scribbled here, the Pussy Riot case is really another bleak iteration of a social stasis that has been alive since the foundation of old Rus.  Also interesting was the emphasis on the 'feelings' of those insulted by the church protest.  The prosecution of hurt feelings is not something exclusive to Muscovy.  Emotions are creeping into the law everywhere.
